    Hello Jessica!

    WOO HOO!  I am honored to help you and your husband plan the most MAGICAL Walt Disney World Vacation for your family!  Let's get started:

    Where to stay:

    Based on the size of your group, I would recommend either Disney's All-Star Music Suites OR Disney's Art of Animation Resort Suites.  Both of the Disney Resorts are considered Value Resorts, which means these the most affordable Disney Resorts on property.  I will tell you that Disney All-Star Music Suites are cheaper and are really nice.  My family has stayed there many times.  However, I will say the suites at Disney's Art of Animation are INCREDIBLE!  If you are looking for the most affordable resort, then the All-Star Suites are your choice!

    What kind of tickets:

    To save money, I would recommend just sticking with the basic Magic Your Way Tickets.  These tickets are the most affordable and will STILL allow you to enjoy all of the four main Disney Theme Parks!

    Best time to visit Walt Disney World:

    There are different times of the year that are more affordable than others.  If possible, try to plan your trip either in January-February or in August-September.  This is when the Disney Resorts are less expensive AND Walt Disney world offers additional special offers like FREE Disney Dining!  NOTE:  Always check out the Special Offers to find out all of the great discounts Walt Disney World offers throughout the year.

    If you have other questions, please let me know!

    Have a MAGICAL day!
